What if I would say that the subconscious brain behaved like a quantum computer? Subconscious brain unlike the conscious brain have a numerous synapses with adjacent dendrites of the neurons which makes us do our tasks without any effort or conscious thinking or planning or what to do next. In quantum mechanics, the illuminated phenomenon of quantum superposition is a marvelous subject of discussion in the field of neuroquantology. So what’s quantum superposition?

Before understanding quantum superposition let us discuss from the very basic principles of the nature of an electron. The electron can exist as both a particle and a wave. In quantum superposition with respect to particle nature , the electron can be at different places in the universe at the same time. For example, in quantum superposition, I can be in USA, UK, UAE, USSR and Australia at the same time which contradicts our logical reasoning and Newtonian concept of universe as well. When it comes to wave nature of electron with respect to quantum superposition, two different waves coexist together without cancelling or summing up each other. For example, in classical concept we know that when a crest of a wave meets the trough of a wave it is said to be cancelled and when 2 crests and trough meet each other they sum up to from a giant crest and trough. So in quantum superposition, it is all about multiple possibilities at a give space time rather than one single possibility. So the very same principle of quantum mechanics is what been used by subconscious brain and quantum computer.

The computers we use today works like the conscious brain with limited synaptic connections. The units used by classical computers is called bits which can either be 0 or 1. The quantum computer works like the subconscious brain with multiple synaptic connections. The units used by quantum computers is called qubits which can be 0 and 1 at the same time. For example, consider a complex puzzle box in which an electron has to travel from its entry to exit. In classical computer, a single electron has to work on escaping the puzzle box so the time taken to complete the task is more and a lot of energy is wasted in the process. Similarly conscious brain with limited synaptic connections takes more time and requires more energy to do a task. On the contrary, quantum computer works on the principle of quantum superposition in which one electron can be at the multiple positions in the puzzle box each trying to find its exit door. Since an electron is at multiple positions doing multiple tasks at the same time it requires less time and less energy is wasted as well. Similarly the subconscious brain with multiple synaptic connections takes lesser time and energy to do a complex work.

Subconscious brain is something that we create by our subconscious intent autonomously in our daily life. The more and more synaptic connections in terms of increased presynaptic neuronal transmitters, synapses and post synaptic receptors is being formed with neuroplasticity psycho-epigenetically with our automated intentions in a very sound idealism based neuroscience. We actually creates a subconscious brain with our intent and if we persistently practice on it. This is the reason why subconscious activities are effortless and scientific as well making it behave like quantum computers of modern times.
